Disneyâ€™s fantastical adventure â€œOz The Great and Powerful,â€ directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baumâ€™s beloved wizard character. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks heâ€™s hit the jackpotâ€”fame and fortune are his for the takingâ€”that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyoneâ€™s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuityâ€”and even a bit of wizardryâ€”Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful wizard but into a better man as well.
“Oz The Great And Powerful” will be released March 8, 2013 and stars James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams and Zach Braff.
